Spinach & scrambled egg breakfast wraps
Prep 15 mins | Cook 5 mins | Makes 4
125g baby spinach leaves
6 large free-range eggs, at room temperature
⅓ cup milk
2 tbs butter, chopped
4 whole wheat wraps
Step 1 Place spinach into a heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water to cover. Stand for a few seconds until spinach wilts. Drain and squeeze excess moisture from spinach. Set aside.
Step 2 Whisk eggs and milk in a bowl until just combined. Set aside for a few minutes to allow foam to settle.
Step 3 Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add butter, melt and swirl to coat pan base. Add egg mixture and cook without stirring for 30 seconds. Using a wide spatula, push the set eggs around outer edge toward the centre of the pan, tilting the pan to allow the uncooked eggs to run over the base. Gently push eggs around pan every 15 seconds until soft folds form and one quarter mixture is unset. Remove from heat. Stir through spinach. Gently fold the egg mixture once more. Set aside to cool.
Step 4 To make wraps, divide scrambled eggs and spinach between wraps. Roll up and secure with string. Serve.
